Well, we took the first step and here we stand -- noted by Architectural Digest, Dwell Magazine and The Hollywood Reporter as a Must-See Event of Modernism Week.
I feel incredibly blessed to be apart of this celebration and I am thrilled that modernists and tastemakers have enjoyed the sunshine, glamour, and mid-century architecture that is Palm Springs. My team and I are humbled and thankful for everyone who purchased tickets, attended CAMP, shopped like mad at the Palm Springs Convention Center or sent poolside selfies to frostbitten friends on the East Coast! We appreciate you and thanks to your support we have met our fundraising goals for continued mid-century preservation for Palm Springs communities.

Kennedy, a resident of Palm Springs for 12 years, was inspired by the blues and greens of his desert city—the golf courses, the succulents, the turquoise pool water. Using those as a palette, he asked designers to "keep it relaxed, gorgeous, and inspiring—everything that Palm Springs should be," while conveying the "easy luxury" of the city's celebrity history...
